From First Presbyterian Day School

First Presbyterian Day School is Macon's only three-time National Blue Ribbon School for Exemplary Performance. We offer an exceptional, Christ-centered academic experience for students in 3K - 12th grade. Our mission extends far beyond the classroom. We seek to educate and equip students to change the world for God's glory. That entails more than achieving high grades; that entails helping students develop a strong foundation of faith, academics, servant leadership, and healthy habits. Just as it takes more than one nail to build a house, it takes multiple Christian mentors in multiple facets of a child's development to help students become tomorrow's Christian leaders. If you would like more information about FPD, our would like to schedule a tour, please call 478.477.4774.

Great Christian-centered environment with engaged teachers who really care about helping students. I transferred from a public school where teacher engagement was a real problem. At FPD I have been motivated to try harder because my teachers care more! There are also more extra curricular opportunities as well. There is something for everyone.

For teacher's characteristics and knowledges, the teachers at this school are talented and intelligent. For example, my AP Chemistry teacher is not only a chemistry teacher, but also a very outstanding entrepreneur. He establishes a entrepreneur club to prepare more students who want to run a corporation in the future. In addition, after school, he also stays at school for at least an hour to help struggling students to solve their problems.

For teaching styles and communication skills, the teachers at this school also have mature teaching method and great communication skills. In an instance, my AP calculus teacher knows learning mathematics needs answering lots of questions. By doing lots of assignment from her, I got a 5 point on my AP calculus exam. She also likes to talk with students, to discuss wonderful football games or some interesting songs. She is one of the best teacher we all like.
Outstanding people and family like culture. The faculty and staff truly care about students and their future. They live out their mission as a Christian School by addressing the whole person from a biblical perspective. Wouldn't want my children anywhere else.
